Program Director’s Welcome

Dr. Kalyatanda

Thank you for visiting the Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program website at the University of Florida, Gainesville. We are proud of our program, faculty, current fellows and alums.

We aim to provide exceptional training in clinical care and research with exceptional opportunities for fellows with varied interests, tailoring the fellowship experience to each fellow’s needs to facilitate them in achieving their career goals.

We invite you to explore our website and learn about the exceptional training opportunities available at UF/Shands Hospital and the Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center. We are committed to offering a program that allows our fellows to gain excellent foundational knowledge in infectious diseases with the flexibility of individualizing training experiences to allow specialization in antimicrobial stewardship, hospital epidemiology, research and global medicine.

All applications will undergo an anonymous holistic review, and selected candidates will be invited for a virtual interview. Interested candidates can schedule a personal visit once the final rank list is submitted to the NRMP. If there are any faculty you would like to interview, please let us know, and we will try and schedule those meetings.
